You usually can download and install in one of two ways.
- Go to Premiere's help section and select 'Updates'
- Go to the website and manually download the updaters from the support section of Adobe.com
Which one are you trying? Try the other. ;-) Also, it's important to know which version you currently have. If you have 4.0.0, you need to go 4.0.1 before you can go to 4.1
Premiere Pro 4.2 is just around the corner.
Thanks Dennis but still problem.
If I go to updates I am presented with:
Version 4.1 Name Size Date Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.1.0 update 30.5MB 5/29/2009 Version 4.0.1 Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.0.1 update 108.5MB 11/20/2008
It makes no difference if I download:
Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.1.0 update 30.5MB 5/29/2009 Version 4.0.1
Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.0.1 update 108.5MB 11/20/2008 Version 3.1.1
I only get a file 110MB called PremierePro-4.0.1-mul-AdobeUpdate.zip in both cases and the files are identical
I think this is an Adobe redirection problem
You FIRST have to update to 4.0.1 (108 MB), THEN update to 4.1.0 (30 MB) as was explained to you by Dennis.
Thanks Harm but I think both yourself and Dennis are missing the point
If I download
Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.1.0 update
and then I download
Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.0.1 update
The files downloaded are the same, both files are 110MB and same MD5
This must be because the file link is the same for both files (Therefore Adobe has made an error with the links)
Unless I am completely missing something
First update to 4.0.1. When that is finished, then update to 4.1.0 using the update option in the help menu.
If you've tried what Harm has mentioned and are still having problems, let me know if its mac or windows and I can try to post somewhere else for you to try...
I don't recall doing them one at a time. It was just the one big 4.1 update, which handled it all.
Gentlemen this is starting to get silly.
Please look at my post No.2 and read it.
If you still do not understand then do the following:
2. On that page you will see two updates available for Premiere Pro CS4 (Windows)
3. Both files when downloaded are identical (MD5 Same)
Before replying to my post please download both files and tell me what the difference is.
All I am asking is how to DOWNLOAD (Not Install) the latest update dated 5/29/2009 size 30.5MB which is not 30.5MB and is identical to file posted 11/20/2008. If nobody understands me after this post then I give up and will go back to my farm.
I downloaded both files after following the links on the Adobe site (not your posted links). I examined them in 7-Zip. Although the file size that's listed for the 4.1 update is wrong on the web site, the downloaded files are not identical, and contain properly dated setup.exe files.
